Oklahoma Senate Passes SB 862, Making Gold & Silver Legal Tender

On Monday, the Oklahoma State Senate passed a bill that would legalize gold and silver as legal tender, moving the legislation on to the House for consideration. The vote was 37-4.

If passed into law, Oklahoma could become the first state to recognize gold and silver as legal tender authorized for payments of debts and taxes.

Last month, the Arizona senate also passed a similar bill by a vote of 18-12. However, the governor has already vetoed a similar bill last year.

The United States Constitution states in Article I, Section 10, “No State shall…make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.” The Constitutional tender act is a big step towards that constitutional requirement which has been ignored for a long time in every state of the country. Such a tactic would achieve the desired goal of abolishing the Federal Reserve system by attacking it from the bottom up – pulling the rug out from under it by working to make its functions irrelevant at the State and local level....

The NTR 1 oz Silver Bullet is a popular silver collectible. Texas-based mint NTR is renowned throughout the precious metals industry. They’ve designed their 1 oz, .999 fine Silver Bullet nearly identical to the 1904 cartridges designed by John Browning for his Colt semi-automatic .45 pistol. Browning, of course, designed various guns, mechanisms, and types of ammunition for the military, as well as civilian markets. The bullets are a nostalgic symbol of this classic era in gun manufacturing. As such, they make an excellent gift for a gun or weapons collector, as well as an excellent investment in silver bullion.

We ship each NTR 1 oz Silver Bullet in brand new condition. All of our silver bullion shipments are mailed fully insured for added protection for our customers. Find them at JM Bullion ->

Hayden’s Note & Full Disclosure:

JM Bullion is a paid sponsor of Truth is Treason.net, but as evidenced by the included receipt image, I regularly purchase precious metals from JM Bullion, including several of the 1 oz Silver Bullets just today.

Stock Market Tumbles 1,000 Points: Hayden’s Note on Tangible Goods

The Dow has fallen more than 1,000 points from the peak of the Market

That didn’t take long. On Monday, the Dow was down another 326 points. Overall, the Dow has now fallen more than 1,000 points from the peak of the market (16,588.25) back in late December. This is the first time that we have seen the Dow drop below its 200-day moving average in more than a year, and there are many that believe that this is just the beginning of a major stock market decline.

Hayden’s Note:

As noted previously, and repeatedly, I believe that tangible goods are the most secure way of protecting your wealth. Whether talking of precious metals, or farmland, or quality implements, tools, firearms, or otherwise, tangible goods – those things that you can put in your hand and use – are of utmost importance in this age of economic uncertainty.

While I applaud the Bitcoin crowd, and even partake in it myself to a small degree, Federal Reserve notes, digital currency, bonds, bank notes, and stock market investments, otherwise known as “paper investments”, hold up very poorly unless you live your life in front of several computer screens, monitoring events in real-time, and work as a day trader.

Every so often, I receive an email asking me to recommend a reputable precious metals dealer or why I invest in gold and silver and not Bitcoin.  I’ve talked at length on the topic of securing metals as a long-term investment, or tangible good; not only for times of disaster, but to simply preserve your wealth.  As we have all plainly witnessed, the Federal Reserve has been on a printing binge for several years now, and with each new round of Quantitative Easing that is dished out, your hard earned dollar is worth less and less.

From my standpoint, tangibles endure the test of time far better than a fiat paper currency such as the US Dollar.  A fiat currency has value only because of government fiat - or declaration.   And since it is tied to the whims of governing politicians and bankers, it risks both inflation and deflation, with inflation causing you to shell out more and more dollar bills for the same old product year after year and deflation making the products you currently own worthless....

Gold Manipulation & the Approaching Perfect Storm

Due to western central bank price manipulation, the mining sector is in critical condition, the supply line is all but halted, and the physical supply is being swallowed up by Asia.

The last shoe to drop is for major mining companies to start closing down production at major mines. Though this would be perceived as the end for gold, speculators will be happy to know that this would be the beginning of the biggest Fed-induced bubble in history!

But unlike previous Fed bubbles, where they support the price increase, the gold bubble will be a result of western central planners mismanaging the gold price for the past 3 decades and finally losing control. As Peak Resources explains in the brief clip, the perfect storm is coming for gold…

Via Peak Resources:

Friday October 11th, gold trading was shut down for 10 seconds according to the CME.

Why? Because someone sold 2 million ounces of gold at one time. Who does this? Who sells nearly 2 and half percent of annual gold production in a single minute?...

Times sure are looking uncertain; families are getting tossed from their homes due to foreclosures, communities are breaking down and decaying as the middle class is destroyed (and subsequent shrinkage in the tax revenues force ever deeper cutbacks in government services), schools and post offices are closing; the list goes on and on.   It gets depressing thinking about how far we’ve fallen in such a short time.

All the while, our “Red” and “Blue” politicians fiddle in Washington and work harder to smear the other party so they can get re-elected, rather than try to fix the plight of the people they are supposed to be representing.

It is no wonder that many folks are taking matters into their own hands and preparing for some kind of change.   Hopefully, for the better, but the process of change will almost certainly be rough.  The powers engorging themselves on the status quo will resist strongly and perhaps even forcibly, prompting even greater resistance from the masses.  The American Revolution wasn’t exactly peaceful either....

Barter Economy: 50g Gold and Silver CombiBar Can Snap into 1g Micro Bars Thumbnail

Barter Economy: 50g Gold and Silver CombiBar Can Snap into 1g Micro Bars

Posted on Dec 25, 2012 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Valcambi sa, an international gold refiner and bar manufacturer based in Switzerland, has debuted their new CombiBar, a .999 gold or silver, credit card sized “bar” that can be broken into 1 gram increments for smaller transactions.

For those who invest in precious metals as a form of barter or alternative currency, the traditionally higher premiums on small gold bars are cost-prohibitive to many buyers, making silver much more attractive due to its lower cost per ounce and ease of use in transactions.

Gold is typically reserved for larger purchases or as a store of wealth, until now.  The CombiBar allows an investor to purchase 50 gram or 100 gram “bars” that can snap apart into individual, smaller “bars” or sheets.  The cards are available in .999 silver, palladium, and platinum!

It should be noted that like all precious metal purchases, there is a premium, and according to my figures, the CombiBar runs approximately 15-25% higher than spot price, depending on what precious metal you purchase.

Typical bullion prices only command a 5-10% premium, so it boils down to, “Are you willing to spend a bit more now for easier use in the future?...

Get Out of the Dollar and Into Tangibles

Posted on Oct 18, 2012 in Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival

Kevin Hayden - TruthisTreason.net

Every so often, I get an email asking where I would invest my money or why I talk so much about putting my money into tangible goods rather than the stock market or traditional CDs.  From my standpoint, tangibles endure the test of time far better than a fiat paper currency such as the US Dollar.  A fiat currency has value only because of government fiat - or declaration.   And since it is tied to the whims of governing politicians and bankers, it risks inflation, meaning that you will need to shell out more and more dollar bills for the same old product year after year.  Look at the price of gasoline, as an example.  Prices inflate because the dollar is losing it’s fiat value – the Federal Reserve is stretching it too thin by creating more money in circulation with repeated rounds of “quantitative easing.”

So what are tangibles, you ask?  Well, that’s a broad term used to describe many things that are physical; something you can either hold in your hand or touch and is worth something. ...

Russia Doubles Gold Holdings: Hayden’s Note on the SDR, Precious Metals, and Money

Posted on Sep 12, 2012 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

While the Federal Reserve Chairman continues telling us that gold is an antiquated investment, or that it simply is not money, top shelf power players continue dumping truckloads of worthless paper currency into the precious metal.  If you’re not very well versed in the commodities or metals markets, there is really only one reason to do this: to hedge against future problems or price changes.

Even though the illustrious Ben Bernanke says that gold isn’t money, it can be bartered, traded, and exchanged for anything you desire, anywhere in the world, and if we were to experience a catastrophic event, such as a grid-down situation, or even widespread social unrest, there is no way for the metals market or mining companies to keep up with demand. If the event were truly bad enough, the thinly veiled circus act known as the Federal Reserve would come crashing down, as well, and society would require some medium of exchange.

Furthermore, back in the 1930′s, once the US Government barred private holdings of gold bullion, it was far easier to circulate the Federal Reserve notes we currently use.  ...

Peter Schiff on Precious Metals: The Time to Buy Cheap Will Soon Be Gone

Posted on Aug 26, 2012 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

With the Congressional Budget Office reporting that the United States will soon fall off the fiscal cliff unless the government takes immediate action, the Federal Reserve weighing another round of heavy-hitting monetary expansion, and the Republican Party now apparently jumping on board the gold standard train, the stars for precious metals seem to be in alignment. So says Peter Schiff, CEO of Europacific Precious Metals.

Having been ahead of gold’s massive upward move years before the bursting of the real estate bubble and crash of 2008, Schiff says there has been a “major development in precious metals,” and if you don’t have any gold or silver yet, this may be your last chance before they head to new record highs.

All summer long I have been forecasting that the prices of both gold and silver would break out. I have been urging clients not to wait until the breakout occurred, but to buy in anticipation of that breakout while prices were lower.

I think that opportunity has now passed. But we still have an opportunity to buy now, while the breakout is still early in its process.

Startling Evidence that Central Banks and Wall Street Insiders are Rapidly Preparing for Something Big

Posted on Aug 20, 2012 in Economic News, Emergency Preparedness & Survival, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Source: Economic Collapse Blog

If you want to figure out what is going to happen next in the financial markets, carefully watch what the insiders are doing.  Those that are “connected” have access to far better sources of information than the rest of us have, and if they hear that something big is coming up they will often make very significant moves with their money in anticipation of what is about to happen.

Right now, Wall Street insiders and central banks all around the globe are making some very unusual moves.  In fact, they appear to be rapidly preparing for something really big.  So exactly what are they up to?  In a previous article entitled,l “Are The Government And The Big Banks Quietly Preparing For An Imminent Financial Collapse?“, I speculated that they may be preparing for a financial meltdown of some sort.  As I noted in that article, more than 600 banking executives have resigned from their positions over the past 12 months, and I have been personally told that a substantial number of Wall Street bankers have been shopping for “prepper properties” this summer. ...

HB 157 Signed into Law: Utah to Accept Gold & Silver Bullion as Currency

Posted on Apr 22, 2012 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Source: CivSource

Utah is now accepting gold and silver as legal tender for transactions and to settle debts according to a bill recently signed into law by Governor Gary R. Herbert. Several other states have proposed similar measures in the wake of the monetary policies of the Federal Reserve and the decreasing value of paper money.

Utah’s law is notable because it is the first such bill to pass. Over 150 years ago, Congress passed the Legal Tender Act, which authorized the use of paper notes to pay bills, and while paper money still retains the value noted, interest rates governing bonds and other savings or investment vehicles are at historic lows and are expected to remain at those lows through at least 2014.

Gold and silver bullion however, are at historically high values and observers expect those values to remain high for some time. House Bill 157 will allow for gold and silver bullion to be used for transactions based on the weight of the amount of metal presented. That is a key distinction because it expands out the use of gold and silver beyond face value on limited runs of precious metal coins offered through the US Treasury....
